St. Johns County Parks and Recreation to Offer “Treecycling” for Sustainable Disposal of Residents’ Christmas Trees

Beginning Dec. 26, St. Johns County Parks & Recreation is hosting its free Treecycling program so residents can recycle their Christmas trees into mulch for the County’s beautiful parks. All trees brought to Treecycling stations must be real and free of holiday decorations.

“This annual event will help continue keeping real Christmas trees out of our landfills and utilizes them in a way that benefits St. Johns County even when they’re no longer lighting up our homes,” St. Johns County Natural Resources Superintendent Nathan Otter said.

Treecycling will run from Dec. 26, 2023 through Jan. 3, 2024, from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., at the following locations:

  • Ron Parker Park, 607 Old Beach Road
  • Mills Field, 1805 Racetrack Road
  • Davis Park, 210 Davis Park Road
  • Tillman Ridge Transfer Station, 3005 Allen Nease Road
  • Stratton Road Transfer Station, 250 North Stratton Road

Residents can also follow this link to an online map on the County website that will let them identify the location nearest to them.

The Parks and Recreation Department’s annual Treecycling program is another facet of the County’s ongoing dedication to sustainability, this time with a festive spin.
